Agonist-like autoantibodies against calcium channel in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy

Abstract

The calcium channel may be an important target in the autoimmune pathogenesis of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). The presence and function of serum autoantibodies against calcium channels (CC-AAbs) in patients with DCM were studied. Calcium-channel AAbs were detected in 80 patients with DCM and 80 controls by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Calcium… (More)
